Hot off the press. Looks like there is going to be an art exhibition for the Beit Shemesh festival this year after all, only not as big as we were planning. We were going to put on ashow with a theme and acceptance criteria and there isn’t going to be enough time to arrange that. The show will be in much the same format as last year. Brenda Ganot just sent an email out about it now to the Beit Shemesh list.
We are now planning the exhibition in the winter around Hanukka time.
The interesting part is that several of us Beit Shemesh artists are getting together to form a kind of cooperative group to put on shows and market ourselves. There is a similar organization already in Mateh Yehuda called Omanei HaElah. This is an exciting development. Maybe Beit Shemesh artists will get on the map.
